Welcome to the metropolis of tomorrow: Building Is People is the joyful new celebration of the people and the processes that make communities happen, thanks to the Prelinger Archive and CC-licensed music from Leggysalad.
Hundreds of shots from more than 40 video source reels were cut up for this, including "Form, Design, And The City" (1962); "Lost Landscapes Of Detroit" (2010); "Once And Forever" (1956); "Out Of This World" (1954); and "Dynamic American City" (1956).
Look for the very special appearances of stars like Edmund Bacon, and young versions of IM Pei and Betty White!
